PAIA Manual

PURPOSE OF THE MANUAL

In order to promote effective governance of private bodies, it is necessary to ensure that everyone is empowered and educated to understand their rights in terms of The Act in order for them to exercise their rights in relation to public and private bodies. Section 9 of The Act, however, recognizes that such right to access to information cannot be unlimited and should be subject to justifiable limitations, including, but not limited to:

  • Limitations aimed at the reasonable protection of privacy;
  • Commercial confidentiality; and
  • Effective, efficient and good governance

And in a manner that balances that right with any other rights, including such rights contained in the Bill of Rights in the Constitution. Wherever reference is made to “Private Body” in this manual, it will refer to The South African College Of Applied Psychology Pty Ltd and all its entities for whom this manual is drafted.
